very pleasant surprise 


■tar a. IMT. «a Mr M. MU 

• Portland, Oregon 

Miss Rose Anderson bftame the 1 
wife of Mr. Alfred Lowe on Saturday, 

May 28th. The ceremony was held 
at the White Temple Baptist Church. 

It 'was an intimate affair, and the 
service was read by Dr. Viller, pastor 
of the above church. Only a few 
close friends witnessed the ceremony. 

The wedding came as a surprise to 
many of the newlyweds’ friends, as 
they planned to marry in June. They 
left that midnight for a few days’ 
honeymoon in Seattle. A few of their 
deaf friends gave them a send-off, 
showering them with rice as they 
entered the stage. They will make 
(heir home in Portland, and will be 
ready to meet their friends after June 
4th. The deaf who witnessed the 
marriage were Mr. Phillipp and Miss 
Doris Clark, Mr. Phillipp acting as 
best-man, while Miss Patterson was 
bridesmaid. 

Mr. Lowe came to Portland two and 
one-half years ago from Winnipeg, 
Can., and became a United States’ 
citizen a year ago. Miss Anderson 
lived in Oregon City for eight or nine 
years, coming from Scotland. Mr. 
and Mrs. Lowe attended the same 
school in Scotland. Mr. Lowe lived 
in Canada seven years. He is now 
employed as a clerk at the Meier & 
Franks Department Store—Portland's 
largest store. 

The young couple have made many 
friends during the short time they 
have associated with the Portland deaf, 
and are learning the sign language fast, 
and are good lip-readers. Mrs. Lowe 
is a member of the S. F. L. Club, and 
Mr. Lowe expects to join the N. F. 

S. D. soon. 

Mr. M. Morton and Mr. H. P. 
Nelson paid a visit to the deaf school 
at Salem recently, and were shown 
every class and department of the 
institution, finding many improve¬ 
ments, and learned that a large num¬ 
ber of graduates will receive tbeir 
diplomas. Superintendent Steed, it 
was understood, has worked hard to 
give the deaf pupils the best of educa¬ 
tion, and always hires good educated 
teachers, who are scarce to get at low 
wages. Many pupils are becoming 
expert cabinetmakers. The two visi¬ 
tors, with Mr. F. A, lindstrom, were 
invited to dinner at the home of 
Superintendent and Mrs. Steed. We 
were also invited to supper at the 
home of Prof, and Mrs. Lindstrom. 

In the evening Mr. and Mrs, Toll, 
Miss Heacock, Miss Winn, Mr. Lynch, 
and the Peterson brothers, called to 
chat until 9 p.m., when the two visitors 
left for home. 

Mr. J. O. Reichle made a trip to 
Salem on Sunday, May 29th, on 
business concerning the O. A. D. 
convention to be held at the deaf 
school, beginning jja. Saturday yuun-. 
ing, September 3d7 and ending Mon¬ 
day night, September 5th. All who 
can are asked to be there as early as 
possible on Saturday morning. Din¬ 
ner will be served at noon on that 
day. Dinner, fifty cents; supper 
twenty-five cents; breakfast twenty- 
five cents; beds twenty-five cents 
each. 

More announcement later when 
president Reichle returns from his 
business trip. Mr. T. A. Lindstrom, 
the general chairman, says his com¬ 
mittee are all live wires, so a great 
time is assured. 

Another new arrival among the 
Portland deaf is Miss Julia Emrich, 
from New York. She attended a 
deaf school there, but her real home 
was in Georgia. Miss Emrich is very 
much interested in learning the sign 
language. She formerly attended a 
day oral school. She is a very plea¬ 
sant young lady, and is living with a 
sister. 

• Another club was organized here 
recently by Mrs. A. Eden. It is. 
named the Rosebud Club. All kinds 
of clubs are forming, but there is only 
a handful of deaf in Portland.

John I. Vdfafwa 


John J. Voisine, for thirty-three years 
a resident of Kalamazoo, Alich., is 
dead. Death claimed him in a kindly 
manner. He had gone to his room for 
an after-lunch nap and in his sleep he 
passed away. 

Mr. Voisine was born in Bay City, 
Mich., July 13th, 1871, the youngest of 
thirteen children, of whom three sisters 
and a brother survive. 

He graduated from the Michigan 
School for the Deaf and followed his 
school taught trade of cabinetmaker 
and carpenter, in which trades he be¬ 
came a real master craftsman. He was 
employed in various capacities, from 
buildings ships to making mandolins 
and guitars. He had recently opened 
a shop of his own in Kalamazoo and 
had the patronage of the better class 
of people, demanding the finest kind of 
work. He had just received a patent 
on an oil can, designed for service sta¬ 
tions and machine shops. 

In 1899 he was married to Amelia A. 
Clark, also a graduate of the Michigan 
School for the Deaf, who survives him, 
and who is now living at their beauti-

The one hundred and fourteenth 
commencement exercises of the school 
is now past. The day was sunny, and 
there was a large crowd on hand that 
filled the chapel to capacity. The 
program went through smoothly, and 
was interesting as well as entertaining. 
Of special mention, were the beauti¬ 
ful Colonial costumes worn by the 
kindergarten and primary classes in 
their rendition of “Episodes in the 
Life of George Washington.” Some of 
the costumes were made to order, being 
a gift from Mrs. J. J. Astor about 
eighteen years ago, when they were, 
used by our pupils in a rally to raise 
relief funds for the French War Chest.

Concluding, he expressed the hope

The last one called was none other 
than the subject the portrait repre¬

maker had to be half dragged. He 
was so taken aback by the show of 
gratitude and love for him that he 
was rendered speedhles?. What else 
expect of a man modest in the ex¬

iqore than satisfied and made happy 
to see their beloved friend and former

was touching, especially the return 
to his seat in the crowd. He seemed 
as if in a daze and lost. This is one 
mental phenomenon tbiscolumn can

in the main concerned the man of

this picked up a few new facts about 
Mr. Teegarden. He had never come 
under Mr. Teegarden’s tutelage 
having attended school awav from 
Pittsburgh, so was bound to m ss 
something about him. 

One remarkable incident about 
him was the manner in which he 
survived a train accident. He was 
carrying baby Alice along a track 
when struck by a train. He was 
picked up unconscious, but little 
Alice was unharmed and sleeping

The members of Wesley United 
Church are planning to hold a private 
picnic some time this June. It will 
take place on the mountain, where 
there are several beautiful shady spots. 
Half of its beauty has not been told, 
much to the writer's amazement. 

At the invitation of the members of 
the Wesley United Church, Mr. H, 
W. Roberts, of Toronto, came up and 
gave a very good address on the 
“Beginning of the Spirit” on May 22d. 
It was a real interesting sermon. 
One of the lady members recited the 
hymn, “How Can I Help But Love 
Him.” Much to the regret of the 
members, Mr. Roberts could not stay 
Roberts’ cousin, Dr. J. Harold David- longer and spend the evening and make
